Watch out for Marco Schwarz
In addition to the Swiss Loic Meillard and Luca Aerni, Alexis Pinturault’s main rival this afternoon could be Marco Schwarz. Why? Because the Austrian is quite simply the leader of the Slalom World Cup. Suffice to say that his morning super-G puts him in good shape.
The best first
The regulations having changed at the start of the 2019-2020 season, the skiers will start on the slalom in the same order as the provisional classification, and not in a reverse order as before. That is to say that James Crawford will start first at 3.20 pm, and Alexis Pinturault will follow immediately.
Disappointment for other French people
Also engaged in the combined, the other Frenchmen Victor Muffat-Jeandet (+2.00) and Nils Allegre (+2.09) are only 24th and 27th in the provisional classification.
The provisional top 10 of the combined after the super-G
1. James Crawford (CAN) in 1: 19.95
2. Alexis Pinturault (FRA) +0.08
3. Vincent Kriechmayr (AUT) +0.30
4. Matthias Mayer (AUT) +0.32
5. Marco Schwarz (AUT) +0.40
6. Loic Meillard (SUI) +0.43
7. Luca Aerni (SUI) +0.53
